I haven’t shaved at all, I mean not even maintenance work, etc, since Nov. 1st. While I don’t mind it on a daily basis, it’s been playing on my psyche, I think. On 2 occasions, I’ve had dreams that suddenly I’ve been clean shaven, and it scares me. It takes me a bit to realize it’s a dream and that I still have my beard. Last night’s dream left me with just a mustache (I like to spell it moustache, for some reason – I think that should be the official spelling). I have no idea why I’m having these dreams and the whole situation seems pretty weird to me.
Other than that, I’ve got another week before I bottle my beer. I want to get a swamp heater/chiller going so I can better control the temperature of my bottles and my fermenters. I think that would help more with quality control purposes.
I got a new cap, a black New Era Montreal Expos hat, it looks like this:
Since they don’t make a black Detroit Tigers hat with a white D (or at least not one I can find easily), I decided to go with a defunct franchise (the Expos eventually migrated to Washington DC where they’re known as the Nationals, FYI). The only problem is, I paid quite a bit of cash for this hat, and it has a glaring imperfection. The MLB logo on the back of the hat is crooked, not parallel to the bottom of the hat, and it’s off center. It’s not terribly noticeable, but like I said, I paid a decent amount of money for the hat and I want it to be as advertised, not some crooked shit. New Era’s support says they’ll get back to you in 24 hours but it’s been 5 days and I haven’t heard shit about it. And I ordered it directly from them, not from some fly by night two-bit operation – unless New Era is actually a fly by night two-bit operation, of course.
